happy hour

Pat's Tap can get crowded during prime time. But remember: The early bird gets cheap drinks. Maybe that's not the saying, but Pat's Tap knocks $2 off rail drinks, house wine and tap beers, and features $5 select apps from 3-6 p.m. weekdays. If you can't work the afternoon angle, circle back for the same bargains 10 p.m. to close Sunday through Thursday.
